Over 40 representatives from local businesses and organizations attended last week's Gender Equality Forum conducted by the #SayNO committee in our club. This is part of the new phase of education aimed at the prevention of Family Violence. Culture, Living the Values and Flexible Hours are some of the things that companies can work toward to achieve Gender Equality in the work place.
Some good questions arose, one being, as most of our staff are women, and the majority of school drop-off and pick-up and child sickness falls on the mother’s shoulders and affect our bottom line! What can we do to make this more even?
